The Dad Days of Summer
Photos provided by interviewees.
Summer break is upon us! Families everywhere are transitioning from end-of-year awards and graduation ceremonies to a new post-school routine. As quickly as the weather changes, we’re making a major mental shift. The days grow longer and brighter, and kids begin bouncing between backyard adventures, summer camp, and extended playdates with friends. Grown-ups earn our stripes as event planners, lunch packers, and travel agents extraordinaire.
Then, before you can say “summer solstice,” our kids will head back to school again.
I recently caught up with four BrainPOP dads who shared how they’ll squeeze every last drop of sunlight out of the season with their kids. And they’ve got some practical lessons planned along the way, too.
